The Z-tronics relay and even Peterson's system involves alot more wiring. But as an electronics tech and being one that likes to be able to fix my own things, I decided I would feel alot safer with the Z-tronics system. It is a system I can troubleshoot and make work and keep working as long as the chips are available, which are very common. The Emutek system and some others are based on microprocessor chips and computer coding/ programming. If there are problems with this process I am at the mercy of the manufacturer, and that can be a long process.   But for those that want a system that can be changed on the fly, then the microprocessor based system is probably the best solution.   Maybe the problems I've heard and experienced with Emutek are isolated ones. For the money it sounds like they have alot to offer.   Eric
